| Century of The Dragon
Director: Clarence Fok
Lau, Louis Koo, Patrick Tam
Hong Kong matinee idol Andy Lau plays an aging mob
boss gone straight who's pulled back into the business by police and
rival gangs. One of his lieutenants (Louis Koo) is really an undercover
cop, and the other one (Anthony Wong) has a son who's returned home from
studying in Britain to learn the ways of the underworld.
Director Clarence Fok (Naked Killer) expertly
paces the action, building suspense as a series of provocations by the
increasingly ruthless kid tests the men's loyalty toward one another.
The chemistry between the charismatic Lau and the stoic Koo generates a
moral and emotional force similar to the male bonding in John Woo's
gangland sagas, and Fok exploits it for a gripping finale.
